Wakefield-based Redrow Yorkshire has appointed Traci Moore as its new land and planning director.
Hailing from York, Traci has worked for several house builders, most recently spending nine years with Harron Homes, where she progressed from land manager to senior land manager and latterly held the role of land director designate.
She said: “Redrow is a forward-thinking home builder with an exceptional product, which places us in an excellent position to maximise new land in desirable areas.
“My aim is to help to grow the Yorkshire business and we are currently focused on delivering the next five years’ land supply, while already working towards obtaining planning permission on several large sites that we have under contract.”
Traci also said Redrow’s approach to championing women in a traditionally male-dominated sector was behind her decision to join the company.
She added: “A key factor in joining Redrow is the company’s modern attitude to working women. Having had my second child I feel that it is important to be in a working environment that acknowledges and supports women who want to continue to develop and strive to reach the top of their chosen profession.”
Heading up a team of six in the divisional land department, Traci works with a variety of third parties from land agents to landowners when acquiring new sites.
Traci added: “I like the variety of people you meet working in the sector. My favourite part of the job is being able to confirm to landowners that we have obtained planning permission and can legally complete on their site. It’s part of my role to ensure the planning process runs smoothly and we deliver a scheme that meets those demands, while delivering for our homebuyers and the wider community.”
John Hanley, managing director for Redrow Yorkshire, said: “With her vast experience working for several major house builders, Traci is an asset to our growing team. We have ambitious plans to grow the division and Traci and her experienced team are key to this rapid expansion. We are looking forward to a really positive year ahead for Redrow Yorkshire.”
